It's looking pretty great. I admit, when I saw some of the early game videos released last year, I was a bit skeptical about the animation quality, but most of those are dispelled now. 'specially that 1911.

The zombies seem to be standing around a lot, and there doesn't seem to be any challenge from what I'm viewing.

Yeah.. the supposed AI enhancements aren't too great, they just seem like cannon fodder.  I guess its more about how where they get spawned?

Its a shame they tried to make it "fast pace" with that ridiculous running speed.  And with that FF crap I would not want to play L4D on a pub server!!  You can be sure that there will be enough TKing for Valve to eventially decide "oh we better put in a TK option".

Thanks for uploading the videos FB :)  I'm still not sure what to make of it... it might be good or it might not.  Given how most online zombie based games turn out to be crap I'm not holding my hopes up, right now this just looks like a trigger-happy FPS version of Resident Evil Outbreak.
If it gets bundled with Episode 3 as the multiplayer component of that, then I would be happy with that.

Those videos are kinda dissapointing tbh.
I thought it would have a lot fewer but much faster, stealthier and stronger zombies. Objectives could be more focused on running away from most foes instead of actually slaughtering everything that moves. That'd focus a bit more on the "survival" aspect of the game, so one'd be afraid to split with their team and take a detour. Though i like the implemented feature where zombies get on top of players and begin smashing them, that indeed does make it a team game when you need teammates to get the thing off you.

Maps and models look brilliant. AI seems a little weak, but I'm sure they'll fix that.

AI, doesn't see you unless you make like a loud noise, or like stand in front of them. They're dumb in small groups or by themselves, but awesome in packs

C&C Ren's is better than it currently. :P

Looks quite nice tho.

Like Coozins said, I'm sure they'll fix it tho. Remember, this is still somewhat early in development. :3

Yeah the AI is a lot like it was in my zombie mod I had set up on my server.

The greatest thing is how the zombies go down, just like in the movies. I can't stand having to shoot zombies a million times to kill em.

The game looks great, my main concern is that AI though. "Would it help if I ran into their bullets?!" -Terrorist from Rainbow Six Vegas 2.

Also, I just don't care much for the playable characters that they've made, but that is what skinning is for!  :P

Hehe I'm pretty sure people will be doing that.  IMO the characters are pretty well modelled, but I don't want to play as Old-Man-Wino, or Extremely-Generic-Token-Black-Guy.  I've forgotten who the other 2 characters are... but they just are rather dull and boring really, they don't stand out as interesting people.  I felt the same way about HL2 characters, they just seemed boring and unimaginative (except for Barney of course)

Well there are loads of good models that can be used for replacing them.  *Cough* residentevil *cough*
